MURFREESBORO (AP) -- A Rutherford County teacher faces six counts of raping a 16-year-old boy.
That's according to several Nashville television stations. Authorities arrested Steven Craig Fults Thursday.
He teaches geography and coaches soccer at Barfield Elementary, which is a kindergarten through eighth grade school. School officials say Fults has worked at the school since 1999.
He has been released from jail after posting a $90,000.
WZTV says Fults is accused of raping the teenager during lunch at another Rutherford County school.
WKRN says Fults is suspended without pay and isn't allowed to have any contact with students or come onto school property.
